Atlanta Boys and Girls Club gear up for 'Salsa, Salsa Challenge'

Kids and teens from more than 20 metro Atlanta Boys & Girls Clubs are gearing up for the "Salsa, Salsa challenge."

The event celebrates eating right and staying active and highlights cooking and gardening programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the city. The kids will compete for the best salsa in the city and learn dance steps from a professional salsa group.

In preparation for the event, Club staff worked with kids to create and maintain a plentiful vegetable garden and held cooking classes where kids learned about fresh ingredients and healthy eating habits.

The "Salsa, Salsa Challenge" is July 17 at the Georgia Tech Student Success Center.
